One option is missing from the poll. Gun control laws are ineffective because only law abiding citizens obey them, and those citizens would act the same way if there were no gun control laws.

Insanity is repeating the same action while expecting a different result. Gun control laws clearly do not stop criminals, and it is insane to think that the solution to ineffective gun control laws is more gun control laws.

Nah. Murder rate is historically low and it's very hard to believe a debate in good faith can happen with the gun control lobby.

You are the one that seems to think we need more laws. What common sense, constitutional gun control law would have stopped the latest school shooting?

Here's a hint at an effective common sense change in gun control laws:

Quote:
According to the Crime Prevention Research Center, from the 1950ís through July 10th of 2016, 98.4 percent of mass shootings have occurred on gun-free zones, with just 1.6 percent occurring where citizens are allowed to have firearms with them.

And there is case study one of why it isn't possible to have this discussion in a intellectually honest way.

You have to be 21 to buy a handgun. How's that working out? The VAST majority of homicides are committed with them not the evil "assault rifle" despite the talking point about banning them.

EDIT: I will take that back the honest part. Most of the anti-gun people on here are admittedly anti-gun and would take guns away from people if permitted. I disagree but can respect that.

Would a 21 law have prevented Cruz from legally buying an AR-15, yes or no?
